7:07 am
who is listening that she cannot compromise her conscience. she cannot compromise the very core of who she is in order to avoid jail. >> reporter: last week, a federal judge released davis after five days behind bars on the condition that she would not interfere with the clerks issuing the licenses. >> i just want to give god the glory. his people have rallied! you're a strong people! >> reporter: thousands of people cheered on the county clerk but not everyone is giving her a hero's welcome. over the weekend, this billboard defending same-sex marriage popped up near the rowan county courthouse and reads dear kim davis, the fact you can't sell your daughter for three goats and a cow means we have already redefined marriage. planting peace paid for the ad. >> we are trying to send her a message to think through this and recognize she is acting as
7:08 am
an agent of the government and if she can't fulfill that duty, she needs to resign. >> reporter: friday, davis' legal team filed a motion asking the court to allow davis to not issue marriage license until the case is settled. one said he will keep issuing marriage licenses even if that means disobeying his boss, kim davis. >> we will be watching. thank you so much. a cbs news poll out this morning showing democratic voters are split over whether vice president joe biden should enter the 2015 campaign. it measures iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina. nearly half of south carolina democrats think the vice president should run. most democrats in new hampshire say biden should stay out. donald trump leads the republican race in all three states. ben carson is running a close second in iowa. nancy cordes is not on the ticket but she is in washington
7:09 am
to show us hour the neurosurgeon is challenging the billionaire. >> reporter: not only is ben carson running a close second in iowa but he is also everyone's top choice. 1 in 5 republicans in the polls said he would be their second choice if their first choice dropped out. >> ben is a doctor and he is not a deal-maker. >> reporter: calling into cbs "face the nation" on sunday, donald trump trained his fire on ben carson, his closest competitor. >> he is not a dearller. he is not a competitor. we have to bring wealth into our country. ben can't do that. >> reporter: it's part of a recent trend, trump calling out his political outsiders. >> i don't think ben has the energy. we need people that are really smart that have tremendous deal making skills and that have great, great energy. >> i knew that i had the ability -- >> reporter: soft spoken neurosurgeon declined to comment
7:10 am
on trump directly. >> i think i'm going to leave up up to the voters. >> reporter: but he says what the country needs is somebody with humility. >> everybody thinks what they do is the greatest thing. if you're a politician, only politicians can solve the problem. if you're a businessman, only businessmen can solve the problem. that is ridiculous list. >> it's a headline. carly, a surgeon. she has 3%. >> now you have this lightweight guy from, you know, bobby jindal, a totally lightweight. >> reporter: he said senator rand paul's home state of kentucky is embarrassed by him. >> he is weak on immigration, he is weak on the military and he has got no chance. >> reporter: the only republican trump has praised recently is former texas governor rick perry, after he dropped out of the race on friday. >> he's a very nice man and i'm sure he is going to have a fantastic future. >> reporter: on the democratic side, a new cbs news poll shows bernie sanders now leading hillary clinton by ten points in iowa and 22 points in new hampshire. >> the american people, in my
7:11 am
strong view, are sick and tired of establishment politics, of establishment economics. >> reporter: but clinton leads by 23 points in south carolina. that is the next state on the primary calendar and her campaign is counting on southern states like that one to help blunt sanders' momentum. the company that handles hillary clinton's private e-mail server reported only says this morning it has no knowledge the machine was ever wiped. according to "the washington post" a chance of recovering thousands of deleted e-mails. two high ranking republican senators say they want those e-mails to be recovered, if at all possible. another new poll this morning shows a majority of americans disapprove of the way clinton has handled the e-mail controversy. only 42% of democrats in the national poll are backing her now. in july, 63% said they wanted her to be the party's nominee.
7:12 am
cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is in washington. >> good morning, charlie. >> it's clear the e-mail issue is causing great damage. how is it damaging her? >> i think two ways. directly and indirectly. on the one hand, people are taking readings from her response to the controversy surrounding e-mail situation and taking an unfavorable view of her. thinking she is not honest or trustworthy and second way the more the coverage focuses around the e-mail story and different answers from her, then the less chance she has to talk about anything else, the less chance she has to say something that would be exciting and voters might be able to rally around. >> what surprises me a decline in women. >> that is striking. one of the cases for the clinton candidacy in a general election, she will have a special poll on
7:13 am
women. so many times i've talked to people in various states supporting her and saying we will pull over conservative women who like the fact she is a female candidate. that is a shot even to the base of her support. >> john, are there new signs this morning that joe biden may be considering getting in the race? >> yeah. john heilemann, our friend, writes in "bloomberg" that joe biden has met with a top obama bundler and clinton supporter. this is important because it shows the vice president directly involved in the process of thinking about building a campaign. so if he is, you know, waiting to jump into the pool, this is him laying out the swimsuit and the goggles and the towel. the stuff you would -- you know, he hasn't made that final decision to jump in, but he has got it all laid out. >> i guess the other interesting thing that john heilemann reports the timetable may be shifting and biden may consider getting in late october, even november? >> yeah. this scenario is sort of waiting for the clinton collapse. so imagining that she continues to have difficulty that her
7:14 am
testimony perhaps on the benghazi matter before congress doesn't go well and that it creates a further poll for him to get into the race. the challenge for him, and this will is a challenge for any candidate, is to wait that long? once you start you're looking like you're running and big meetings with big fund-raisers, there is a poll and if he can hold that off, that will be something -- that will be extraordinary. >> we will be watching. john dickerson, thank you. a manhunt under way in western kentucky after a state trooper shot and killed and happened on interstate 24, 40 miles east of paducah. police closed part of the highway overnight as they hunted the suspect. officials say the man fired several shots and then ran away. a lawmaker is expressing concern this morning for the safety of pope francis when he visits the united states next week. texas congressman michael mccaul said yesterday that authorities
7:15 am
disrupted a threat to the pope and did not get into specifics. a law enforcement tells cbs news there is no credible threat to the pope that they have seen and they have seen nothing to indicate an issue. several children are among the roughly 30 immigrants who died this weekend when their boat capsized near greece. most refuges arrived in greece this number and traveling in record numbers and european nations are struggling to cope. germany is tightening its borders and hungary is taking steps to cut off the flow of the migrants. charlie d'agata is along the border. >> reporter: part of the crackdown means sealing off this border the next couple of days. up until now, the hungary policy would make them crossing the borders here and they don't want to do that. judging from what we saw this morning, somebody has a significant change of heart. they don't trust the police and if you're going on to buses means being sent off the
7:16 am
reception centers and made to register in hungary. this morning, we watched something else happened for the first time. we followed a bus of migrants taken to a train station headed to austria out of hungary. out of the horror stories he heard of getting trapped, this man was dumbfounded. >> if this train goes to austria, yeah? and from sfroaustria we go somee else. >> reporter: so many pressured for days to register for asylum before going onward. >> we happy. we want to close the door. yeah. very lucky. i'm really lucky. >> reporter: hungary is about to close the door. harsh new laws good into effect this week to keep the migrants out and they have sent troops to catch anyone who still manages to get in. we have even seen prison inmates enlist inside a race to finish the razor wire fence between
7:17 am
hungary and serbia. german officials who have seen hundreds of thousands of migrants pouring into that country is reaching its limits and decided to temporarily introduce border control. meaning migrants may be leaving here but not able to get there, stuck in the middle -- again. what is happening when they seal this border? migrants will do what they always do and find another way. slovakia and austria will do more to secure their borders. >> charlie in hungary, thank you so much. the first nfl sunday of the new season ended very badly for the new york giants. this morning new york daily news calls the loss to the cowboys super dumb. e tony romo had enough time to

8:04 am
last week was something almost unique in politics. a very private conversation. i think it's fair to say similar to conversations he's been having privately with his friends and supporters, conducted on national television. i mean, that was joe biden that you saw. there was no artificial there. that is him. >> we all said when politicians are so script in sound bites even time they are on this stage, it seems so authentic like a private conversation. >> it really was. i think your poll this morning actually is a great ill straighter i think where the decision is for so many people and the vice president was candid about the fact he hasn't made a decision yet. the poll basically saying it's not clear, right? i think he was -- you know, he was clear with stephen colbert that he is not going to run unless he feels like he is ready to be president. >> you know politicians and you know joe biden and you know his friends, anita. what do you think in the end he

poll a great mantle wants someone who does not have experience in government and they are much more attracted to the outsiders business it's different for the democratic candidates but it speaks to i think a continued polarization in this country in terms of the party looking for different thin but no doubt that is a rocket fuel right now for donald trump or carson or carly fiorina in that republican primary. >> does it have something to do with sanders? >> i think bernie sanders who, you know, is one of the most authentic candidates you can get in a year where authenticity really matters. he is what he is. he is comfortable with his positions. he's had them for a long time. yes, i think people are respond to go that. >> just quickly back on the democratic race. john heilemann of "bloomberg" reporting that joe biden can wait after benghazi testimony by
